I was given this building two or three years ago, and have been trying to move it here ever since. It’s finally here, and I’m trying to find information about it. The man who gave it to me described it as a “WW2 era portable wood building”. My search has turned up nothing, but it sure is good to have it here at last. #history
In order to avoid making a big mess, I scraped the entire building by hand. Then it was ready for paint. I applied two coats, the first one soaked into the old dry wood. Here it is painted white.
The sides of the building have 14 boards on them, and I realized that it’s a flag halfway drawn. The American flag has 13 stripes; 7 red and 6 white. So I decided to paint a Betsy Ross flag on the other side, which faces the road. My son helped. I have a very nice set of steps made, they will be added soon, and then I’ll show you what I’m doing inside.
I want to make a larger sign above the door, as well as an old RC Cola sign next to the flag; but I couldn’t resist the fun of making this little sign. We are opening a country store and trading post; it will be online at first, then I’ll make a rolling store for local sales. thanks for visiting our site, and if you like what you see, please link to this and other pages.
